When the legendary Blue Note label was relaunched in the mid-'80s, this concert was part of the celebration. Miles Davis' classic rhythm section (Ron Carter, Tony Williams, and Herbie Hancock) are reassembled here, capturing a shadow of their early brilliance. There are some rough edges, but this is understandable; this was the Blue Note repertory company of the early '60s, not the mid-'80s. Bobby Hutcherson's song "Bouquet" showcases his grace and athleticism on vibraphone. That, coupled with a fresh version of Hancock's "Cantaloupe Island," make this an interesting document.
